I’m not a food scientist or doctor, but I have heard many anecdotal stories about the benefits of A2 milk. The farmer saw marked differences when he switched his baby and calves to 100% A2 milk. Our customers have told me stories from simply being able to drink milk again to recovering from colitis and other chronic digestive issues. But what about cheese? Does A2 matter when it comes to cheese? The short answer is...

We love getting feedback from customers. One thing that we hear fairly often is, “Your prices are so high.” The farmer gave it some real thought and came up with five reasons why his prices are more expensive than most other farms in the area.

I had the privilege of visiting the Netherlands last weekend. Of course, I wanted to visit a farm. I was in luck! I found a Dutch farm that sold raw milk AND welcomed visitors. This farm was mechanized. Robots were everywhere.

My kids asked me this week, “Why is an egg white clear?” They followed that question up with another, “Why does an egg turn white when it’s cooked?” Great questions! So, I researched.

According to the CDC and FDA, drinking raw milk puts you at risk of exposure to a wide range of bacteria including Brucella, Campylobacter, Tuberculosis, E. coli, Listeria, and Salmonella. So, what does the farmer do to verify that his milk is safe?

Miller’s Biodiversity Farm goes deep. The farmer doesn’t simply trust a product label or offer short answers to his customers. He finds fellow farmers and companies he trusts and provides accurate and transparent information about his products. Every detail counts. Sure, the farmer feeds his animals a natural diet and makes sure they live an active lifestyle. No, he doesn’t give vaccines or routine antibiotics. No, he doesn’t use chemical pesticides, herbicides, or fertilizers. No, he does not feed or sell GMO crops. But those farming practices are the broad strokes. He goes deeper.

This weekend we celebrate Mother’s Day. This is undoubtedly a human holiday, but I’d like to reflect on all things that bring life into the world. This includes something slimy and delicious and somewhat mysterious… kombucha! Kombucha originated around 2,000 years ago in the Far East. It is a bubbly tangy fermented beverage with tremendous health benefits for your brain, your heart, and especially your gut. The active culture in kombucha is called a SCOBY (which stands for symbiotic culture of bacteria and yeast). My kids like to call it the “kombucha mommy”.

Spring is here. The grass is growing. You know what that means. It’s time to make hay! I had the pleasure to visit the farm this week. The sun is shining. The grass is certainly green and at least two feet tall. Yup, it’s time to make hay. Hay is integral to agriculture. It’s how you can sustain animals in the colder months. And, you need to plan ahead. As the saying goes, you need to “make hay when the sun shines.”
